I recently noticed that a lot of chemical-laden ‘beauty’ and ‘personal care’ products had made it into our home. We weren’t using most of them (so why keep them?!) but some were in our regular rotations.
I gathered our products together-even checking ones I thought were ‘safe’- and looked up their ratings in the Cosmetics Database. If they scored too highly, I dumped them. About half were brand-new and could be donated to the charity shop. That didn’t alleviate the guilt of trashing the others. Still, the reminder of how toxic some things can be kept me from using them. It’s time to push back the chemical creep!
